Why It Matters

Today the Red Wings will finish off the back-to-back against the Bruins. The Red Wings suffered a tough loss yesterday against Boston after going up 2-0; then the Bruins scored three goals unanswered. Today's game will be Tyler Bertuzzi's return to Detroit. Detroit needs a win today, and will rely on Ville Husso in the net.

Tonight’s Red Wings player to watch: Alex Chiasson

Alex Chiasson Player to watch

Chiasson is an NHL veteran who is in his 11th season. Chiasson has spent this season in the AHL playing in 29 games scoring nine goals and adding 11 assists. Chiasson has been a key piece for the Red Wings lineup since he was called up. Chiasson has played in four games scoring a goal and two assists. Chiasson has played 635 career games entering this one, scoring 115 goals and adding 112 assists. The biggest stat that is beneficial to the Wings is Chiasson's 355 career penalty minutes. 

Chiasson is expected to play on the fourth line alongside Austin Czarnik and Adam Erne. Chiasson will also play on the first power play unit with Lucas Raymond, David Perron, Dylan Larkin, and Moritz Seider.

  • Chiasso has one power-play goal, and one power-play assist this season.
  • Chiasson has 39 power-play goals, 33 power-play assists in his career, and four shorthanded goals in his career.

In his career against the Bruins, Chiasson has played in 20 career games. In those 20 games, he has scored five goals and added two assists. This season against Boston, Chiasson has only played in one game, and that came yesterday. Chiasson would score a power-play goal in that game.

Wrap Up

The Red Wings enter today's game coming off a tough loss yesterday. A game in which the Red Wings dominated but just fell apart in the second period and allowed the Bruins to tie it up before giving up the final goal in the third to seal the win for Boston. The Red Wings needed two points yesterday, but they fell just short. Today the Red Wings need to pick up at least a point as they will enter today's game trailing the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders by nine points.

The Wings did get some help yesterday as Buffalo, Florida, and Ottawa all lost, three teams that are ahead of them in the wild-card chase; today, they could gain some ground if Pittsburgh and Ottawa both lose and Detroit picks up two points. The Red Wings have an uphill climb ahead of them even to reach the playoffs, and it won't be easy to pick up a playoff point against the NHL-leading Boston Bruins even with the Red Wings' number one goalie in net.
